High-End Shrunken Calfskin Case

The SP3000T comes with a deluxe case crafted from shrunken calf leather sourced from Perlinger in Germany and Alcantara in Italy, ensuring a level of style and quality that matches the quality of the device. The shrunken method used to craft the leather results in natural wrinkles, creating an irregular, yet distinctive texture that enhances its luxurious appearance. Unlike regular embossing techniques, this process preserves the leather’s natural texture and minimizes discoloration, ensuring the color remains vibrant even after pro- longed use.

The case of the SP3000T is fashioned from exquisite leather crafted by the Per- linger tannery in Germany. With a heritage spanning five generations since its inception in 1864, Perlinger stands as the last bastion of calf leather manufacturing in Germany. Renowned for its unparalleled quality, Perlinger’s shrunken calf is regarded as the finest in the industry, making it highly sought after by prestigious luxury brands.
